Neil Nixon has been writing for publication since he was a student, creating a body of work including journalism, fiction and factual material. His titles for Gonzo explore the kind of subjects that have never ceased to engage him, specifically the lesser known corners of culture surrounding rock music, along with the paranormal and conspiracy theories. A resolute sceptic where the most fanciful claims are concerned and permanently capable of finding the ironies and humour in his subjects, Neil’s explorations of the strangest and most incredible sounds and, amazing claims made about these sounds, are more akin to literary “all round to mine sessions” in which the calm and companionable conversation you share gradually reveals itself to contain the most mind-bending twists of fate imaginable.
He does very much the same thing on his radio show – Strange Fruit – editions of which are readily available via Gonzo Web Radio. Neil has a website at www.neilnixon.com
